Ryleeee---You couldn't pay me to drink bath water that MY kids been in!
I think I'd have to take antibiotics if I did!
Hillary isn't impressed with water or food wither. She likes to grab everything off my plate and stuff it in her mouth, but it comes right back out again. I guess when it stays put, she's ready for solids.
I'm thinking about working a few hours a week at the Aquatics Center where we swim, if they need me, to try to help with the ever-increasing costs of all of us being in the pool every afternoon every day. WOW, a job, I can't even imagine. Even $50 a week would be so much help, especially with the 3-yr-old taking lessons now which adds $150 a month (ouch!). I don't know WHEN in the world I'd work, but I feel the need to, both financially and otherwise. Just to do something different.
Gotta run and iron shirts and pay bills and stuff. What a thrill.
Would it be a crime to take my kids out of piano lessons so we're not so stressed out financially and time-wise? My son especially loves it and is truly gifted at it, but god, the $$$ and the time....I dunno, it's a hard decision. Advice, anyone? Allgirls, I've been thinking about what you said about taking all the kids out of activities for a year. (Except swimming---we live to swim!!
) Everything else quickly becomes just too too much. Roller skating, ballet, piano, etc etc etc. I'd rather just do math & science and the beach in the mornings, and swim every afternoon. It would be simpler. It's so hard, you want your kids to have every "advantage" and pursue their talents and things they love, and yet, it can become so overwhelming, especially with four kids 8 and under. Sometimes i think we're crazy, doing even half of the stuff we do.
